When was $16.61 DSC effective

Recommended Posts

I was just looking at my summary for my upcoming cruise and discovered the daily service charge was listed as $16.61 if i wanted to prepay. When did this go up from $14.99 per person per day for a balcony?

All the more reason to prepay at booking.   DSC can go up anytime but they never retroactively increase the DSC if it has already been paid.     Almost makes necessary to book several iffy cruises couple years in advance with the prepaid DSC (even before final payment) to ensure that we are not paying more.

 You make a good point as I have discovered. But I’m really concerned since I did not read anything that they were going to up the DSC to $16.61.  Can anyone confirm that this is now the new daily service charge for a balcony. Thanks! Plus no one is posting this increase  on cruise critic.

As you seem to have issues with the amount of the Daily Service Charge,why not simply go to guest services and request that they credit the discretionary charge back to your account

Obviously you need to call NCL and check this out. I haven't seen nor heard anything about an increase in DSC nor would the price seem real: $15.50 maybe, even $16.50 but the number is just weird. Let us know what you find out.

    • $23 USD per person per day for Suites;
    • $20 USD per person per day for all other stateroom types

 Thanks everyone. I will call my TA Monday. I was just hoping I could get a response that confirmed this odd  figure showing up if I wanted to pre-pay the DSC on my account. As mentioned I went to the link provided above and it did not show $16.61 per day per person. My cruise is not until next month.  Bottom line it must be some sort of glitch only in my account which is really weird.

When I click your link I do not get an answer to dsc, can't find it anywhere ob NCL

 

Works for me (and obviously the OP since they confirmed the $15 and duckey who copied / pasted it).......

 

Go old school with a pen & paper...... write down the link and the type it in your browser. You may have pop up windows blocked or another security policy preventing you from getting it.

I didn't read that they had an issue with the charge.  I thought the OP was only asking because of the discrepancy between what is posted on NCL and what was on their summary. Did I miss something?

When someone is asking questions over different amounts, that to me constitutes an issue

or maybe just seeking clarification because everything (CC, NCL website, etc) indicates $15 and their paperwork states $16.61...... I'd ask the same question. 

 

So you interpret asking for clarification or having a question as having an issue....  then I guess every thread and poster on Cruise Critic have issues.

No - Alaska on Sept 2.  It's still showing $16.61 or $232.50 for 2.  Apparently I am the only one who is having this weird problem - figures....thanks!

totally agree. I took it the way you did: just wanting to get a clarification, not a huge issue. I would probably do the same thing.

You are agreeing with a post but then admit there was an issue although not huge ????? Riddles ?????

I'm sure your TA will get it straightened out for you ASAP. Have a wonderful cruise, love the Jewel class ships. 😉
